Crazy GFS run and so many areas to watch in the tropics!
- Check out this crazy run of the GFS which pretty much brings hurricane conditions to most of the Caribbean and east coast of the United States. This is obviously still out in fantasy land as we have no idea what the future holds for potential Hurricane Sally.
- The 2nd image shows all of the areas of interest in the tropics with a couple of new ones! The following is from the National Hurricane Center:
